May 2018: PWHS postdoctoral fellow Esther Maas will speak at the IWH Speaker Series in Toronto on June 5. Livestreaming is available. Gradual return to work (GRTW) provides workers recovering from an injury with the opportunity to limit or modify work tasks and gradually build up work hours and work load with the goal of returning to full hours and duties. In this presentation, Dr. Esther Maas will present her research, which used detailed administrative workers’ compensation calendar data on return-to-work (RTW) in British Columbia to explore the effect of GRTW on sustained RTW. She will also discuss opportunities for using population-based data to analyse the costs and effects of GRTW to improve RTW outcomes.
